The purpose of the OpenPOWER Architecture Compliance Definition document is to give a consistent approach to compliance under the guidance of the Compliance Work Group. It contains the following: • Document the OpenPOWER specifications that contain the interfaces that are required to be OpenPOWER compliant • Document...

The OpenCAPI Power Platform Architecture (OPPA) defines an accelerator interface structure for coherently attaching accelerators to the IBM Power Systems™ using an OpenCAPI Physical Link. The intent is to allow implementation of a wide range of accelerators to optimally address many different market segments. The...

This document provides errata against version 1.4 of the OpenPOWER ELF v2 Application Binary Interface Specification. These errata should be considered part of said specification until such time as a newer version of the full specification is published. This document is a Non-standard Track, Work Group...

The goal of this project is to provide functional equivalents of the Intel MMX, SSE, and AVX intrinsic functions, that are commonly used in Linux applications, and make them (or equivalents) available for the PowerPC64LE platform.   This document is a Work Group Note work product owned...

The OpenPOWER Foundation set up the OpenPOWER Ready™ program in 2016.   Within the program, developers identify products for use by members of the OpenPOWER ecosystem.    The OpenPOWER Ready mark indicates that a product should work with other OpenPOWER Ready products.  Because of this the...

This document provides requirements on a test implementation targeting the Application Binary Interface (ABI) for OpenPOWER. Currently, this test implementation is shipped with the gcc sources, and so forms part of the official gcc build and test process.   The OpenPOWER ELFv2 Application Binary Interface (ABI) Compliance...

The ABI (application binary interface) specification provides the definitions for the machine interface and inter-object interfaces for the little-endian POWER architecture.   This specification defines the OpenPOWER ELF V2 ABI which is derived from and represents the first major update to the Power ABI since the original...
